Girls' Club Plans. •Plans for three new Four-H girls' cluba to be started in the near future, a determination that Kosauth shall go down to the state fair this fall and win a state championship, and Increasing Interest In the style- show side of girls' Four-H club work apparently were the highlights of a meeting of the girls' club county board at the home oC the chairman, Mrs. Paul Kreltho, near Hurt, January 31. The new home demonstration agent, Muriel Body, was in attendance; also Mrs. E. B. Dittmer, of Hurt, Emma Outknecht, Lakota, Mrs. ,T. M. Patterson, Algona, and Mrs. .1. H. Warburton, Lakotn. Clubs to be organized soon Include a second club In I..U Verne town ship, one in Gat-field, and one In Plum Creek township. There n.r now 14 active cluba i n the county. The county board wants to send health girl, a style-show girl, judging team, nnd a demonstration team to the state fair. This means at least six girls and their leaders The girls should get education health, and fun out of both the trip and the preparation for it. With the co-operation of the girls, their leaders, and the community, there is no reason why the Kosauth clubs should not brng home a state cham plonship. What was that message to Garcia? ".It' shall be done sir!" The style-show girl makes her own gowns, with the. training anc help of Four-H ideas and then wears them at the state fair. Th health girl competition has alread; become keen. As an instance of how Kosauth is becoming known over the U. S. for Four-H club work, a letter was received recently by the county chairman, Mrs. Kreithe, from Flintstone, Allegheny, Maryland, asking for ideas on the best way to establish and maintain a news letter such a.s the "Koasuth Bubbler," which Four- H girls here have maintained for some time. "The Bubbler" is one of the interesting features of club work, and has been a factor in building up the county organization to its present position of leadership. There are now 300 girls in Four-H clubs In this county, and three or four now clubs to be organized will bring the number to a total close to 350 before county fair time, according to present indications. Miss Body said; "The girls are coming to meetings In large nunv bers. They have the Four-H spirit More communities have asked foi new clubs than over before so early In the club year. The project— second-year clothing—Is unusually interesting to girls of this age, and the style-show also appeals to them. The leaders too are enthus iastic." imateurjsh and should not catch ven ine most Inexperienced young arm woman any more.

Come to think of It, however, both Mr. Latnprlght and Spongberg use blcyles a good deal, so their bicycle mileage would have to be taken out; also In figuring for Mr. Medln we did not count the mileage while he was riding the milk wagon. PAQEELEV«M The Brown Hatchery. The Brown hacthery Is open for :he season's business. The Browns have been doing business In the same location for five years now. Each year they attract more and more of the special hatching work from farmers and poultrymen who want the best individual attention In hatching. The Brown hatchery has studied the hatching of duck, goose, and turkey eggs, and also has been handling the hatching of high-priced eggs. Some of the customers live as far away as Esthervllle. Many local farm poultry raisers have had their breeding stock hatched at Brown's for years. They also have good connections for supplying hatching eggs from which baby chicks are hatched for sale. .' Mrs. C. K. Clark, daughter of Mrs. Brown, Is just the kind of fusser about moisture, ventilation, temperature, and other details that careful poultry raisers like to deal with. For those who have not before dealt with the Brown hatchery we can FARM NEWS AND COMMENT. E. P. Jones, local hall Insurance manager, Informed us a couple of weeks ago that he had already written $145,000 of hall Insurance for the coming season. He lives across the road from L. H.

Walker ; home south of the Kossuth County 1 State bank corner in Algona we recently met Mrs. Tom Halpin and learned-that she is a daughter of the Walkers. Mrs. Walker said, "Yes, and you have mentioned other children of mine on the Farm page." So we learned that Mrs. J. M. Patterson, south of Algona, and Will G. Walker, now of King's Ferry, New York, Portland township, are advertising their S. C. R. I. Reds, both chicks and hatching eggs, for sale. The Phelps have raised this breed for 15 years, have studied poultry breeding carefully, working closely In harmony with Iowa State college Ideas, and have gradually expanded their business as they felt sure they were ready to go ahead. They offer birds of uniform color, true to type, and will deliver just what they promise. About a month ago we received a letter from S. H. McNutt, Pullman, Wash., in which he asked for a report on results of spraying" the Farm editor's fruit trees last season. He enclosed a two-page mimeographed circular he had got out relative to spraying, in which he also .takes up the subject of choosing trees that will pollinate themselves, or if that ie not done, then of choosing trees that will be pollinated by other trees Included in the planting.

Mrs. Thomas Rich, west of Algona on the new No. 18 paving, mentioned that her husband, the late Thomas Rich, came to Kossuth 40 years ago this coming September to do fall plowing on the 80-acre farm they had just bought. Mre. Rich followed the next January. The Riches farmed the 80 acres for 11 years and then bought the 160 acres where a son, Ed Rich, now farms. They moved onto this property and farmed both places for a time. In 1917 they took a two-year trip to Illinois, then came back to Algona and lived in town four years. Then a new modern house was built in 1924 on the old 80-acre home farm and they farmed it through 1925. The family then moved back' to town, and In 1927 Mr. Ridh died. Mearitime Paul .Palmer rented the 80 acres. The following year Mrs. Rich rented this place to her son-in- law, John Gettman, newly married to her youngest daughter, Blanche, and went to live with the couple. This spring Mrs. Rich bought out the Gettmans, and now with her oldest son, Earl, will operate the 80- acre farm again. Ed, the youngest son in the family, still has the 160-acre farm. Mrs. Rich has two sons, three daughters, and 16 grandchildren. She mentioned that during her long residence in Kossuth she had from the beginning dealt with the Kossuth County State bank. Earl, who will operate the farm now for Mre. Rich has been working for his uncles, the Rich brothers south of Burt. The two older daughters are Mrs John Sabin, who farms next east and Mrs. Archie Walker, who farms a mile west. The Walkers have four boys and five.girls; the Sabins have two girls and a boy. The Gett- mans have one girl, and the Et Rich family Includes three girle and a boy. One of the girls is now in Kossuth hospital with a broken leg VALUE-LONG I'M ^ i r ; M : M a received when she was struck by a car on the paving in front of her home recently.

Folks who take up some of the offers of cheap baby chicks that are being broadcast this year would b better off to build a bonfire with their money rather than buy weak diseased chicks hatched from jus any kind of market eggs, often bj Inexperienced, low-wage hatchery employes.

Will Walker, who formerly blacksmithed here for Paul Clark! and then at Fenton for Einer Fauerby, is now taking care of a 200-acre fruit, farm in New York state for a relative. The elder Walkers 20 years or so go owned the farm where Mre. r alter Gellenfeldt now farms. They old it to Walter's father, Charles eilenfeldt, when they moved to own. For the last couple of weeks Mr, /alker has been working at felling g trees in the neighborhood of the pencer and Bohannon homes, near he corner of McGregor and Woos- er streets. He is now 78 years of e, and Mrs. Walker Is 73. The ouple will celebrate their golden edding anniversary next Novem- er 23. Schmidts to Algona. Mr. and Mrs. August Schmidt are ow residents of Algona, near the ast end of State street, having loved from their .farm near the ood Hope church, after 28 years, dr. and Mrs, Schmidt have reared hree boys and three girls, and have een them all married and started ut for themselves. Now the youngest son Alfred, married December 10 to Lena Drey- r, Fenton, has taken over operation f the home farm, and Mr. and Mrs. chmldt will enjoy a rest which hey surely have coming. Mrs. Alfed Schmidt is a daughter 'of Mrs. W, H. Dreyer, whose farm just west f Fenton Is being operated by a on Everett. " The Dreyers are pioneer farmers n the Fenton neighborhood.

Mr. Bjelland recently took the barber' shop over and operated it on trial for a period. He is a good manager, has a well kept sanitary shop with two operators, and has now for several weeks been proprietor. Robert E. Kain, Algona, has, had only one renter on his 240-acre farm in Plum Creek township since he retired from the land himself some 16 years ago. He eays F..W. Davidson, who has now bought a farm of his own and will move, is a good renter to deal with. We have not seen Mr. Davidson recently, but it is safe to say that he would also pronounce Mr. Kain a good landlord. The farm.Mr. Davidson bought is the former John Wolfe property right on the paving just east of Algona. This is a fine home, and we are glad to see one of the neighbors get it. The Kain farm hae been rented by S. W. 'Allen, now located Just west of the Vic Johnson corner n a farm that he and his father ave been operating. Mr. Allen for- ;erly farmed where Z. G. Gibson ought south of Tltonka. Mr. Kain armed the property 22 years, from 594 to 1916, and then moved to Alona.
